The Vancouver Canucks are the only team in the National Hockey League without a win this season.
In conversation with Postmedia’s Patrick Johnston, J.T. Miller reflected on his start to the season.
The quotes in the story that have gotten the most attention from fans came when Miller spoke about his play away from the puck so far this season.
“My game, where I’ve really tried to work on, is five-on-five in my own end and worrying about that first. Offence later. And if I look at the way I’ve been playing there, I feel really good about what I’ve done so far… The timing really hasn’t been there yet for offence… But I think it’d be immature of me to hit the panic button. I’m trying to be patient, but I’m not going to change the way I’m playing, away from the puck and in my own end because I don’t think I’ve given up much of anything there.”

Miller has been on the ice for the second-most goals against league-wide, behind only Dmitry Kulikov of the Anaheim Ducks.
We talked about that, Miller’s comments, the overall vibe around the Canucks heading into their home opener Saturday night, and much more on today’s episode of Canucks Conversation.
